Omagh Carers Walking Group encouraging new members to join for 2020!

14/01/2020

The Western Trust Carers Support Team is looking for new members to join the Omagh Carers’ Walking Group as we begin a new year and new decade.

Commenting on the benefits of joining a walking group Geraldine McLaughlin, Western Trust Carers Support Team and Walking Group Leader said: “We would encourage members of the public who are informal (unpaid) carers to participate in their local walking groups. The aim of the walking group is primarily to improve carers’ health and well-being and give them some time out of their caring roles. It provides an opportunity for carers to meet, keep fit and make new friends and also enables us to listen to carers experiences in a relaxed and informal setting.

The Carers Walking Groups are supported by Cathy Magowan and Geraldine McLaughlin, Carers Support Team. Carers meet up each week for a chat and walk and finish off with a cup of tea and a bun in the local coffee shop!!

The Omagh walking group meet every Tuesday morning at 10am at Omagh Leisure Centre and new members are very welcome to join at any time!
